Did you hear about period poverty? What is period poverty? Who does it affect and what can we do to help? In South Africa, there are thousands of young females who are forced to stay at home when they are on their menstrual cycle. This is due to the lack of financial resources to purchase sanitary supplies. Young females miss a whole week of school which in turn adds up to over a month of their schooling year.
How can we help? Join us at Fourways Crossing to restore dignity in commemoration of Women’s Month. From 3 to 31 August 2021, donate feminine sanitary products inside the Perspex heart at the Pick n Pay Court and fill it with love for ladies in need. The donation station is open from 10am to 3pm. All donations will be handed over to the Green Door Shelter for underprivileged women. You can also win amazing prizes at the end of the Campaign by simply making a donation, filling in the entry form and wait for a potential call after the campaign. There are three amazing prizes up for grabs!
Let us come together and help fight period poverty in our community! “It is not just the girls and women who benefit from having proper menstrual hygiene, the broader society and national economies can profit from better menstruation management.”– SAHR Commission.
